I Should Have Kissed You Lyrics

Play "I Should Have Kissed You"
on Amazon Music

I keep playing it inside my head
All that you said to me
I lie awake just to convince myself
This wasn't just a dream
Cause you were right here
And I should've taken the chance
But I got so scared
And I lost the moment again
It's all that...

    This is one of my favourite one direction song so I'll break it down line by line:

    "I keep playing it inside my head
    All that you said to me"
    He's remembering the time that she told him how she feels about him. at this point they're just friends but she wants to commit to a relationship

    "I lie awake just to convince myself
    This wasn't just a dream"
    He can't go to sleep because this thought of them being more than friends is a new idea to him, it's consuming his mind.

    "Cause you were right here
    And I should've taken the chance
    But I got so scared
    And I lost the moment again"
    after she told him how she felt, he starts to realise that he has feelings for her. wondering whether he should have made a move

    "It's all that I can think about, oh
    You're all that I can think about"
    he can't stop thinking about her and that time

    "Is your heart taken
    Is there somebody else on your mind"
    wants to know whether she's seeing anyone or interested in anyone

    "I'm so sorry
    I'm so confused just tell me
    Am I out of time"
    he's sorry and unsure of what he's feeling. wants to know whether he still has a chance with her

    CHORUS
    ***
    "Is your heart breaking
    How do you feel about me now"
    wants to know whether she's upset about their relationship, and want to know if she still has feelings for him

    "I can't believe I let you walk away when
    When I should've kissed you"
    he realises now that he should have faced her at the time she did and tell her how he felt ans kissed her... he's regretting not doing anything about it
    ***

    "Every morning when I leave my house
    I always look for you, yeah"
    not really sure about this, but maybe they were really close and lived near each other, they may have always gone places together, since she was rejected by him she doesn't wait for him anymore?

    "I see you everytime I close my eyes
    What am I gonna do"
    can't stop thinking about her

    "And all my friends say
    That I'm punching over my weight"
    his friends thinks he's in over his head if he thinks he can get back with her. they acknowledge that he missed his chance

    "But in your eyes I
    Saw how you were looking at me"
    he could tell that what she was saying was real by the way she looked at him

    "It's all that I can think about, oh
    You're all that I can think about"
    again he can't stop thinking about her

    CHORUS


    "When you stood there
    Just a heartbeat away"
    at the time they 'almost' kissed/ talking about their relationship

    "When we were dancing
    And you looked up at me"
    they spend a lot of time with each other and go out, she looked at him all the time in a loving way, he didn't pick up the signals

    "If I had known then
    That I'd be feeling this way"
    definitely coming to the realisation that he has strong feelings for her

    "If I could replay
    I would have never let you go"
    if he could do it all again, he would tell her how he feels as well

    "Noooo
    Never let you go
    Am I out of time"
    wants to know whether he still has a chance

    CHORUS

    It's about two young people (lovers) and one person can't really explain the feelings ("I keep playing it inside my head,all that you said to me") Then it goes on like, (" Is your heart taken?" ) Then... ("How do you feel about me now?) and ("You were right here when I should've taken a chance."

    the interpretation of the song is this: (in my opinion) they were friends. like close friends. the underline meaning of the line "I should have kissed you" is that he shoud have told the girl everything he feels and he should have gotten her. the song meant that the girl confessed, but he was like 'okay'. but after that moment, things changed for the boy and he felt that he's in love with the girl. but the guy keeps questioning himself like "should i say it. but what if the girl already moved on?" or somewhat familiar questions that. the dancing meant something else like that moment when the guy realised everything changed and he wanted to hers.

    He think if he kissed you you would realize that you could love him, but since he didn't you have someone else and the thinks its his falt because he loves you and there is no way to tell you now.

    Well I think it's about they were at prom and they almost kissed but this dude punched the guys.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    This guy has a crush on a girl. While they are slow dancing, he missed his chance of kissing her, instead he let her walk away. This song is about how he regretted not kissing her. I LOVE YOU ONE DIRECTION!

    The boy has a crush on a girl that maybe he knows since a long time.Now she's all he can think about, and the boy is very confused and he wants to ask her if she feels the same for him.He also regrets that he had the occasion to kiss her,but he was too scared of show his feelings and he didn't.
